Why You'll Love It

Our customers come from all over the Chicago suburbs to see this Fairbanks model, and it’s easy to see why! With nearly 3,100 square feet of living space, four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a two car garage, and a beautiful display of our designer options, this home impresses all who walk through it!

The exterior of the home gives off a praiseworthy first impression. With the resilient HardiePlank siding, eye-catching shake siding, robust brick accents, and lavish white trim accents, this is a house you want to call home. The front porch is one that just calls to be sat on all day. While we’re at it, take a seat to prepare yourself for what’s in store once inside.

Open the front door and be amazed! The level four hardwood flooring flows from the entrance all the way to the rear of the home. The trim work on the walls brings your gaze from one wall to the next. The soaring two story foyer has you feeling so small. The stairs are calling for you to ascend to the second floor.

The front of the home is the perfect home office. We’ve converted the flex room to a study, complete with glass French doors. It can also make a great playroom, especially with that plush carpet! Next you’ll come across the dining room, complete with a dazzling tray ceiling and large, bright windows. The dining room has a convenient pass-through to the kitchen, which is where we’re to next.

This kitchen is made your inner chef. There’s plenty of room to spread all of the ingredients out on the island, and with the island’s overhang, kids, family, or friends can hang out while the cook gets busy. Aside from the large center island, the Fairbanks’ kitchen showcases beautiful 42-inch upper cabinetry, granite countertops, a white subway tile backsplash, and GE® stainless steel appliances. This kitchen and dining room combination makes everybody eager to host a party!

Off the kitchen are two great, distinct spaces. The traditional breakfast area lies between the kitchen and family room, and easily fits a table for six or more! Behind the breakfast area, though, is a stunning morning room. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee with friends while taking in all the sunshine!

The family room showcases a few additional windows for those who wish to get maximum natural light into their homes; you can see them on either side of the gorgeous fireplace. On the other wall are beautiful custom built-ins, perfect for holding DVDs, video games, and more. Off of the family room is a great tucked-away area. With the owner’s coat closet, E-Zone cabinetry, a powder room, and the laundry room, everything is well hidden yet easily accessible.

Let’s head upstairs. You won’t even be fully up the staircase when you get the first peek into large bonus room! We’ve shown the loft as a relaxed second story family room, complete with a comfy sectional and a perfectly-sized entertainment set-up. Those striking mission stained rails with painted spindles are carried throughout the second floor, allowing the hall and loft area to flow seamlessly.

Just off of the staircase is the master suite – let’s go on in! Both the master bedroom and en-suite bathroom display our volume ceiling option: talk about “wow” factor! The Fairbanks’ master bedroom easily sits a king sized bedroom set, with room for a sitting area and more. Back in that en-suite, you’ll feel like you’re in a luxurious spa. The luxury master bathroom option we’ve selected for this model shows a separate soaking tub and shower, a double sink vanity, and dazzling designer tile work throughout. A water closet sits near the shower, and the large walk-in closet sits by the tub.

You don’t want to leave, but we have more home to see! The three other bedrooms offer great space for whatever needs you and your family have. We’ve merchandised the rooms as bedrooms, but we’ve seen our homeowners utilize the spaces as home offices, work-out areas, craft rooms, and general multi-functional spaces. The second floor is completed with an additional full bathroom.
